I've cut out most effects from my chain, but I'm sort of addicted to having a little compression for some clean boost to help with the OD and of course use a TS9. The TS9 and Compressor are both from Robert Keeley. His TS9 mod is spot on and gives true pass through. His Compressor is smooth without any of the harsh pick attack that I've heard from some compressors.
I've always liked how the Compressor and TS9 interacted with the single coils in my Strats and Teles. I was a little surprised at how nicely the same effects work with the TV Jones pups in The Slimtone.
I'll sometimes add a distortion pedal to the chain when I'm really trying to make things dirty. But I really don't use it very often. Haven't even pulled out the Wah in a very long time.
Current chain is just: Boss TU2 --> Keeley Compressor --> Keeley Mod TS9 --> Blues Deluxe
I've also got a Blues Junior that I use when I don't want to lug the Deluxe around or just want to play at lower volumes. I prefer Tube amps with on-board Reverb.
I had a fun thread on another site where I listed the history of each of my guitars. I think I'll resurrect it here.
